👋 Hey there, I’m Tobias! I'm a 4x founder and CEO. After almost 20 years as an entrepreneur, I strongly believe that founders and leaders have to aim for both: success and kindness; professional growth and personal growth; a healthy mind and a healthy business.
If you share this belief, I’m sure you’ll enjoy my newsletter: twice per month, I'm sending out a free email that helps founders grow — themselves, their teams, and their businesses.
02 How to build better teams
We have more than enough scientific studies to prove it: happy, healthy and collaborative teams are more successful. This means that a strong and positive company culture is not a cherry on top of the cake. If we want to build successful teams, we need to invest in building a better company culture.
Over the years, I’ve built multiple wonderful teams (both remote and co-located). And I now teach founders and leaders how to do the same. Check out my masterclass on “Building Better Teams” if you want to build a healthy, successful team.
03 How to make remote work... work
Remote work is not a question of “office vs. no office”. It’s about building an organization that is more efficient and robust (and happens to be location-independent). The principles behind the most successful remote companies are applicable to each and every organization, no matter if they have an office or not.
If you want to learn those principles — and transform your organization — you can subscribe to my newsletter and I'll let you know once my upcoming course on this topic is available!
04 Success and kindness
Many founders, entrepreneurs and leaders believe that you have to be tough and aggressive to win in business. They believe that kindness, empathy and compassion are out of place here. They think these things are synonymous with weakness.
But the experience from my own success as an entrepreneur — and hard data from lots of scientific research — suggest otherwise.
Becoming a better human, being a good person and treating others with kindness and respect are not in conflict with being successful. Quite the opposite, in fact, these things fuel our success!
05 Who I am
My name’s Tobias and I've been an entrepreneur for almost 20 years. During this time, I've had my fair share of wins and losses:
I started 4 companies, made 2 of them profitable, and successfully sold my last one.
I grew this last one, together with an amazing team, to over 100,000 customers in companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon before it was acquired in 2021.
I built teams with an exceptional company culture, full of wonderful people.
I started introducing remote work already in 2010 and found ways to actually make it work.
I experienced severe burnout in 2014 and have been living with chronic illness for more than a decade.
I’m a certified MBSR meditation & mindfulness teacher.
I donate 10% of my income to a good cause, every year.
Thanks for reading! It really means a lot to me.
